The view of Townsville from Mt Stuart
I can't really believe that another week has gone by here in paradise. Last Saturday we drove over to Homehill about 103kms away for the local Craft Extravaganza in the Uniting Church hall. It was absolutely packed wall to wall of quilting shops, beading and every other craft you could think of!! It was very well represented. I managed to slip another bag pattern in my bag to go home (yes another bag pattern) I actually visited the stallholder's studio this week in Townsville very nice and a very talented lady. DH was quite happy at the fair as they were selling damper baked in camp ovens by fellow travellers so I was able to escape to browse the stalls in utter peace while havachat discussed the pros and cons of the damper making. Sunday we drove up Mt Stuart and we were amazed that there was a local BMX meet and the riders actually rode down the mountains on a really rugged track specially formulated next to the main road . Very Bizarre I am glad I didn't have to ride it. When we reached the top the view was amazing.

There is alot of birdlife around the area every night we have the curlews and during the day there are lots of mudlarks, Ibis and Brolgas. There are one or two kangaroos also. e will be here for at least another week. On Thursday we are driving the Jimny down to Brisbane for a family event and we are looking forward to catching up with the family for a few days.
